Wine Of The Week NZ

Stonecroft Reserve 2014 Syrah, Hawke’s Bay NZD$65

I recently opened a bottle of Stonecroft 2006 Syrah. It was terrific. I expect this wine to be even better. It’s wonderfully dense with a genuine “old vine” texture. Packed with dark berry, plum, black pepper, chocolate/mocha, liquorice and mixed spice flavours. This is a long-distance runner, although it is deliciously drinkable now. (Cork)
